Lockerbie bomber release was wrong, Scots say in poll.

Only 32 per cent of the 1,005 people questioned by ICM Research said they agreed with the Scottish government's decision to free Megrahi on compassionate grounds on Aug 20, while 60 per cent of respondents said it was the wrong thing to do, according to the survey done for the BBC.

Almost 70 per cent of respondents said they believed that factors other than legal grounds influenced Scottish justice secretary Kenny MacAskill's decision, according to the poll.
